OnePlus has finally revealed India prices of the OnePlus 8 Pro, OnePlus 8 and OnePlus Bullets Wireless Z.
OnePlus has finally revealed India prices of the OnePlus 8 Pro, OnePlus 8 and OnePlus Bullets Wireless Z. OnePlus had launched the OnePlus 8 series phones and the OnePlus Bullets Wireless Z for global markets (including India) on April 14 but while the company had announced US and European pricing for these devices on the same day, their India prices weren’t announced — possibly because of a lack of clarity around the country’s ongoing nation-wide Coronavirus lockdown.
OnePlus revealed the India prices of the OnePlus 8 Pro, OnePlus 8 and OnePlus Bullets Wireless Z through a ‘guess the price’ promotional event on social media ‘exclusively’ meant for the company’s Red Cable Club community members on April 19. The Red Cable Club is a lifetime free program available for all OnePlus users that gives them access to exclusive benefits and rewards — in this case, an early access to the India prices of OnePlus’ new products.

There’s still no word when you can buy these products in India though. The OnePlus 8 series India price reveal comes the same day that the Ministry of Home Affairs prohibited e-commerce websites from selling non-essential goods until May 3. Since smartphones (and earphones) aren’t classified as ‘essentials,’ OnePlus can’t sell them in India at least until May 3. More details are awaited.
The OnePlus 8 series phones pack flagship-grade hardware, boast of premium glass and metal design, and even though OnePlus is climbing up the price ladder, it is, at least, offering an impressive spec-sheet, including a few firsts, to justify things.
